Mercedes GTK Concept by iPeg Mercedes GTK Concept by iPeg
For a change I tried designing a car instead of a weapon. Well it ended up being a car WITH a weapon. Hope you like it :-)

About the vehicle:
This is the Mercedes GTK Concept in Bundeswehr (German Army) ISAF camouflage. It's essentially a 2 seater next generation offroad vehicle filled with technical ideas. To begin with, the GTK has no axes but 4 electric wheel hub motors in every wheel. The wheels are attached by 6-axis KUKA robotarms and steered by FESTO fluidic muscles from -90° to +90°. This allows the vehicle to be extremely offroad capable, fast and agile.

The car has no windows and is designed to be aerodynamic and ballistic impact-reflecting. It also features split gullwingdoors, a electric winch, 360° cameras, slideout weapon storrage, a 40mm GMW and a battery slate system below the bonnet.

Well there is already the Dingo, which is basically a Mercedes Unimog chassis with armoured body by KMW and remote controlled machine-gun.
Nice work though.

when I saw this I had to have one.  And now I do!  I painted it with a dark red-violet carbon fiber.
keep up the awesome modeling and let me know if you license any more designs to fabricators. 

paintjob below…

I think this vehicle look best in this camo. Great work..
Beowulf2345 Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Honestly, imagine what this would look like if it was made of carbon fiber. I love the way carbon panels look, so... I feel like it should be retextured with that texture just because CarbonFiber is the coolest thing ever.

Looks great - will help for "road rage".  Great to see you have tyre tread going the correct way too!
Tyrranux Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013

Forgive me but this whole think looks REALLY cool, except for the really weird and super exposed back end. Gotta fix that man.

Stunning design

very cool, great job !!
marcinciszewicz Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012
Beautiful - and regardless of Antenotici Workshop doing it, I'd love to develop the idea further, if you don't mind - although after browsing KUKA catalog, I'm somewhat wondering how heavy this thing is. Their best robot arm can support 350 kilos of weight, which means that any four wheeled thing heavier than 1.4 tons would be impossible, unless you factor in future advances in materials technology.
NewAgeOfPower Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012
What does GTK stand for?

Gepanzertes Transport Kraftfahrzeug is something like Armored Transport- But this looks like more of an fast assault/scout car- or even a robotic combatant.

Either way. Bad. Ass.

would look awesome in my drive way
RDFAF Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012
Motherfrakking awesome! Can it come with windows anyway and 4 people? It looks like the perfect candidate for the HUMMV replacement.
EbolaBearSoda Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011
Awesome design.
Really cool idea.

I think you need at least a periscope or something so the crew are not reliant on electronic vision.
UlricConnal Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
+1 for KUKA robots!
bikehikeclimb Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2011  Student Digital Artist
How long did this take you? What is the rendering engine?
Senthrax Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011  Student Artist
Awesome. Worked out great though I think you should add some more barrels ^^

this would be awesome for the halo movie
Rob-Cavanna Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
Seriously awesome! :heart:
Tergonaut Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2011
Oooh, I really like this one. It reminds me a lot of the Sophia 3rd from the Blaster Master games, and the modern styling of it is really awesome.
R4pp Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011
Superb, somehow reminds me of a jeep in one of the earlier HALO games (I'm not a fan of them). The only criticism I could give is that the front grill and lights look a bit too modern day super car like, meaning non-militaristic but maybe that's not what your work is about...maybe the lights are hard to detect and only the driver(s) if there is a driver :) really sees what the light shows. Of course Mercedes always like to make sure they leave their mark with their brands symbol too ;). I like it a lot.
Ferain Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2011  Professional Artist
This thing looks intense, though on first glance, this seemed to be a groundside realisation of the increasing remote-controlled vehicle-use in modern warfare. Anyhow, this looks great! Very amazing, and extremely realistic!
